About the workshop
Inspired by the teaching of Harvard Professor and landscape historian John Stilgoe, this short workshop is about the acute observation of ordinary things in one of America’s most beautiful cities: San Francisco. The workshop will encourage you to become aware in everyday places, to see in utterly new ways, to enrich your life and your photography unexpectedly through the appreciation of what is around you everyday. We encourage you to work on any kind of photography that you want to, whether it be street photography, narrative, portraiture or urban landscape. The workshop will be held during San Francisco’s LGBT Pride Parade.
Day 1 (21 June):
6pm: Meet in San Francisco for two hours.
You’ll spend the first day with Gary and Maciek working on storytelling technique, which will include a portfolio review and discussion about your projects for the following week. Group dinner in the evening.
Day 2 and Day 3:
You will work on your own photography during the day, returning in the evening for a daily edit session with Gary or Maciek. Gary and Maciek will present their own photography and the work of other photographers. Both will be available to talk about the craft and business of photography.
Final day to shoot. In the afternoon you will work with Gary and Maciek to edit and sequence your work culminating in a projection in the evening followed by dinner.
